Mercanta’s own supple leopard, Jamie Marler, graduated from Bath University with a degree in Chemistry, admittedly by the skin of his teeth. After completing some courses at the LSC including Advanced Cupping and Coffee VRQ, we decided to give him a chance.
Since joining in 2013 he has worked in all areas of the business. He’s a darn good cupper and account manager, he knows our systems like the back of his hand and orchestrates complex shipping and logistics as if it were child’s play. We’re keeping him.
He has, on various occasions, mentioned that he plans to claw his way to the top using any means necessary, but he has promised to be a fair and just king of the jungle when he gets there.
Jamie serves as an account manager to various regions within the UK, Europe, the Middle East and New Zealand. He is responsible for sourcing from Honduras and assists with Colombia and Brazil.
